Somerset Patriots-Goodbye Atlantic League, Hello Minor League

Here is the latest information on the Somerset Patriots move from The Atlantic League of Professional Baseball to the New York Yankees Double A farm system.
While some might think the Patriots sort of “sold out” and abandoned the Atlantic League to move up, others might think the move an entirely sensible move.
I’ll let you, the reader, form your own opinion.

From MoMA – Virtual Views – Gordon Parks

MoMA has an interesting article on the famous photographer, Gordon Parks. I have enjoyed his works for years. I hope art lovers enjoy this.

Excerpt from my email from MoMA:
“In 1968, Gordon Parks addressed the (mostly white) readers of Life, where he was the magazine’s first African American staff photographer, by stating, “I am you, staring back from a mirror of poverty and despair, of revolt and freedom.… We are not so far apart as it might seem. There is something about both of us that goes deeper than blood or black and white. It is our common search for a better life, a better world…. Look at me. Listen to me. Try to understand my struggle against your racism. There is yet a chance for us to live in peace beneath these restless skies.” 

Parks used his camera to fight injustice and discrimination. For over half a century, from the 1940s to the 2000s, he captured American life with his powerful photographs. In 1957, when television was broadcast in black and white, he created “The Atmosphere of Crime,” a photo story for Life about crime in the US, in vivid color. The images are valuable historical records and unforgettable works of art.”

Making use of time with a hobby.

I made some use of my time to take my mind off of this recent pandemic and the stress that goes with it.
Aside from other useful time situations (chores and other life things), I organized some of my collectables.

I set up a little memorabilia section in my room.
